Isochromosome 1q as the sole karyotypic abnormality in a Sertoli cell tumor of the ovary

Cancer Genet Cytogenet. 1993 Jan;65(1):79-80. doi: 10.1016/0165-4608(93)90065-t.


Sertoli cell tumors are rare low-grade malignancies occurring in the testis and the ovary. No chromosome studies of this tumor type have yet been reported. We observed an extra i(1q) as the sole chromosome anomaly in an ovarian Sertoli cell tumor.
